  • A lovely, still functioning 16th Century monastery. Well worth a visit. Just a 15 minute walk from the harbour. There’s a well kept museum as well. Entrance fee to the monastery is €3.

  • If you go here watch the video very interesting things to learn, a lot of beautiful things inside. About 15 mins walk from Kolymbari harbour.

  • Beautiful! The views over the ocean are stunning! Museum holds divine iconography, garments, books, history - do watch the filmed biography they view. Lovely giftshop, the cream the monks make themselves is very healing. And the church itself is gorgeous. May it be blessed!
  • Very nice small monastery chapel, good views over the sea, unexpectedly good museum. Nice to see the deer across the road and terrapins too. Good little gift shop with local spirits/wine.
